Okay so this lake, Diamond Lake, is gorgeous, and I hear that it was stocked with 500,000 trout not too long ago, and I can definitely see Tons of Fish! on our fishfinder, but we've fished for two whole days and haven't caught squat.
Oh, and the mosquitos are CRAZY here. WTF? The camp host was all "Yeah, well, any body of water in Oregon, you know…." and I'm thinking "No fuckin' way dude, we are at lakes ALL the time in Oregon and I've never in my life seen this many mosquitos." I think actually that's why the fish aren't biting. It's because they're stuffed to the gills with bugs. Although I'm not sure to explain how that cute little chubby kid down the row from us was walking up from the lake with a net filled with 10 or so trout, but whatever. Maybe he bought 'em at the store.
